Location & Neighbourhood
Etobicoke condominiums are a great opportunity for both the investor and the end-user, especially if you like the idea of a region that’s full of potential and growing as we speak.
This particular stretch along the Queensway has been steadily seeing more development, typically in the form of contemporary mid-rise buildings that combine residential space with ground-level retail.
It takes advantage of great transit access, the conveniences of big-brand retailers like Costco and the nearby Queensway Park, which features baseball diamonds, a rink and public pavilion.
Commuters will appreciate the proximity to the Gardiner Expressway, while public-transit-users can take advantage of the frequent transit routes along the stretch, which connect with Sherway Gardens in the west, and directly to the TTC 501 streetcar in the east. Additionally, this location offers a high Walk Score of 85/100, making it easy to accomplish most errands on foot.
Designated as an “avenue” in the provincial plan, the stretch along the Queensway is identified for even more intensification and growth, which makes it a great location to consider investing in.
Etobicoke as a whole is a bustling commercial hub, home to several high-density employment districts in the corporate, manufacturing and service fields. It’s recently been announced that the region will soon be home to two large-scale film production facilities totalling 50,000 square feet, giving it the opportunity to become a destination for cultural and entertainment jobs as well.
We’re seeing an increase in younger companies choosing to set up headquarters in this region, driven by its easy access to Toronto and the potential for growth.
From the 500-acre Centennial Park to Islington Golf Club and the series of trails surrounding Etobicoke Creek, greenspace is easy to find here too. Getting to the shores of Lake Ontario takes just minutes and provides residents with a pedestrian promenade, parks and a sailing club.
From the condo site, it’s also a short drive to Sherway Gardens Mall, which serves as the region’s main retail and lifestyle destination. Recently renovated, the mall features a gorgeous, light-filled interior and houses over 200 high-end retailers, restaurants and lifestyle services, from Saks Fifth Avenue to a gourmet food market by Pusateri’s.
